I'll Believe It When I See It

Okay, sure, there seems to be a growing chorus of media rumbles about the possibility of the Democrats taking either the House or the Senate this year. Even some Conservatives are worried enough to start considering the possible benefits to the GOP if they lost the House. Certainly, losing Congress was in many ways the best thing that ever happened to the Democratic Party, as the Congressional leadership had grown fat, self-indulgent and stupid. But first, what does the media know? Second, there's still a million years between now and November. And third, Democrats have a penchant for navel-gazing and thumb-sucking that may yet enable them to defeat themselves. MyDD has a similar view on Democratic angst and self-defeatism.
